One year later and the scars still haven’t healed. In fact, one year after we watched the biggest threat to our democracy in our lifetime, the nation is only more split apart over what happened that day, and what it means for our nation. While some held a moment of silence to reflect, others continue to shout that what happened was necessary, even some act of patriotism. Others try to pretend it didn’t happen, or downplay its seriousness. The events of January 6, 2021 have hardly brought us together as a nation. They have torn us apart. And the attacks continue to this day. 64% of Wisconsinites surveyed in a Marquette University Law School poll believe the election was stolen. But it was those who used physical force to charge the U.S. Capitol, at the direction of their President, who tried to steal the election. They hatched a crazy plan to try not to certify the election results so that Donald Trump could remain President. Partisans tried to subvert the will of the people by deciding who won the election regardless of the actual vote count. If we continue down this path, we risk further violence, or even an actual overthrow of our election, and our democracy may not be able to withstand that.
